  • Approximately 30 percent of patients in need of a stem cell donor find a match within their families. The remaining 70 percent search a worldwide database of unrelated volunteer donors, who may be their "miracle match" willing to donate life-saving cells.

    Currently, many medical insurance plans (in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island only) will cover the cost of the tissue typing for registration with the marrow donor program. Please bring your insurance card to the donor drive.

    If your insurance will not cover the tissue-typing fee, we are able to cover the cost of your test. However, if you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to help our recruitment efforts, we would greatly appreciate it.
